from los angeles, michelle, on the democratic line. caller: good morning. i think the wives do lend to the pageantry of running for president. peoplee don't know these personally and we are always looking at their public statements to find out what they are really like and home. ann romney gave a speech early on when mitt romney was running in the republican primaries. she was talking about he was on the road a lot. she developed ms. she said i have these seven boys and she said she was talking to him and telling him i don't think i can do this alone, this is really hard being here all alone. he told her, well, your job is way more important than mine and i know you can do it. i thought that was an interesting comment. i thought, does that mean he left her there along with those boys when she said she could barely get out a bet? to me, that indicated something i was thinking, that his instincts seem to fail him in moments when you really need someone to make a decision. instincts tend to help him when he tends to make a critical decision, like when he went after bin laden or when he
ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. president obama and mitt romney are both capitalizing on the debate spin this week. particularly in going after women voters. and can you guess what the number one search term on google was yesterday? binders full of women. not only is that one not playing well for romney, it is not even true. those binders came from a group called the massachusetts government appointments project which put the list together before romney was even elected. so for him to say he requested groups of qualified women is a flat-out lie. romney did hire several new women but by the end of his term, the number of women in top positions was actually lower than it was when he took office. >>> romney's going after the president nonetheless saying there are more women in poverty now than when obama took office but the president is hammering home on romney's views on fair pay. here he was yesterday in eye what. >> when young women graduate, they should get eq

in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. if you are asking yourself who won last night's presidential debate you probably weren't watching. president obama came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is t
